Every year, 19 million ambulances arrive to Emergency Departments (ED) in the United States. Yet across the country, paramedics and EDs still rely on low-quality radio transmissions to relay urgent messages. Without a patient name, EKG, or photo, diagnosis is often delayed until the patient arrives, leading to wasted time and costly delays in treatment. For strokes and heart attacks alone, improving ED outcomes represents a $2.1 billion market opportunity.
First responders use the Twiage smartphone app to instantly capture video of a stroke, EKG of a heart attack, photos from a trauma scene, or digital voice memos. This information is combined with GPS tracking and sent to hospitals in real-time via the Twiage dashboard, a visual tracker of all incoming ambulances. By providing EDs with rich situational awareness of their inbound traffic, Twiage enables ED staff to accurately predict patient arrival and prioritize resources.
